Video games have a lot to teach us about mindset.
Just by living and breathing, we’re just waiting for the next crisis, be it the next pandemic, war or financial crisis.
That generally brings a sense of doom and gloom.
When dealing with crises, big or small, public or personal, turning from pessimism to a sense of challenge should help.
Just like video games. Gamers don’t shy away from difficult boss monsters. Gamers ask “how am I going to beat this level?” and “How am I going to get the highest score and complete this mission at the best speed?”
Not “oh no!”,
but “what am I going to do to get through this?”
or even “how am I going to get through this and come out on top?”
